I honestly haven't read the books, but I thought that this episode was such a shock to actually see on the screen. I've heard about the Red Wedding but I didn't know who were the major characters that were a part of the massacre. All I knew was that some people get killed. After reading about it after seeing the episode, I thought it was a brilliant scene that was adapted well on screen even though some things were left out like Talisa being killed in the show, which I thought worked well leaving nothing for Rob. And Caityn's final scream was deafening after Rob is killed and herself killed.

There is a fair amount of sex and violence in the books, but I agree that HBO has stepped it up a couple of notches in some very unnecessary ways. I guess they think telling an awesome story isn't enough to get people's attention these days.
It's HBO. They can do almost anything without restrictions since people have to pay to watch their shows. I agree that they do have a lot of violence and sex in their shows but it looks like people don't care if they pay.
I want to read the books just to see what changes HBO did. I know that Talisa lives since she isn't at the wedding but I liked that they killed her by taking everything from Rob and killing Rob taking everything from Caitlyn.
